Since January 2002  Permaculture International Ltd has received over 
$17,000 in donations from Permaworld to support its work. Permaworld is a 
Canadian on-line environmental fundraising initiative based on the 
principle of network marketting to support permaculture and other 
earthcare projects around the world.
	Thanks to these funds from Permaworld, PIL is now in a financial 
position to begin to move ahead. The office is now staffed 3 days a week 
to provide the essential administration required to enable further 
projects and to coordinate volunteers and special project teams.   
	Funding guidelines are being drafted to use a portion of these funds to 
support permaculture projects in developing countries.  Other projects 
under consideration include producing a CD-ROM of the best articles of 
out-of-print issues of PIJ, publishing a Permaculture International 
Yearbook and furthering the work towards developing accredited 
permaculture training.

(PIJ = Permaculture International Journal)
Some of the Permaworld funds are being used to cover post and packaging 
costs to send a limited number of packets of (approx. 20-30) PIJ back 
issues to not-for-profit community organisations. These packs are now 
available for organisations including NGO's in developing countries, 
Permaculture and Landcare associations, environment centres, community 
garden and city farm associations, schools and public libraries.  
Interested organisations should send in an application with details about 
their organisational (legal) status, objectives and activities.
